Tanzania warns its citizens against third wave of coronavirus

Tanzania's Health ministry has issued a statement warning against a possible third wave of Covid-19 in the country.

“This is due to indicators observed by the Health Ministry and rising Covid-19 cases in all the neighbouring countries. We urge the public to take this matter seriously and observe all measures to prevent spread of coronavirus disease,” it said in a statement late Saturday.

This is the second time the country is issuing a warning over a possible third wave of the virus.

The Health ministry also directed all government authorities to ensure that the wearing of masks, washing hands with running water and soap or use of sanitisers are observed.

“The ministry reminds all citizens not to ignore Covid-19,” the statement said.

Tanzania has not announced the number of coronavirus cases in the country since April 2020, but has recently made strides in combating Covid-19.
